Raya 5 String Electric Bass
They say it all boils down to chemistry, and a precisely right mix of elements makes Versoul’s Raya Bass 5 an exceptional instrument.
A two-piece Finnish Alder body is one essential element. Another is the laminated maple and aspen neck (40 mm width at the nut) with a two-way adjustable truss rod. The instrument’s 35” scale length, coupled with top tier materials and superb craftsmanship, add up to a bass with exceptional depth and sustain, and none of the G string `dead notes’ or related flaws to which basses are often prone. An East Indian rosewood fingerboard (9.5” radius) is as playable as it is artful, with green abalone shell dot inlays. Delivering tons of tone is a Versoul Model 2 Bass humbucker with Alnico 5 magnets and volume and tone controls and a coil split switch. Options include custom finishes, gold-plated hardware, and, for warm, open-sounding acoustic overtones, a chambered body.
